About The Library Is On Fire

With a name inspired by French poet René Char, The Library Is on Fire is the brainchild of founder Steve Five. Drawing on influences the indie rock of the ‘90s, the band’s sound combines the raw guitar rock of Dinosaur Jr. with the lo-fi melodies of Guided by Voices. The band began as a recording project for Five in 2007, who made the trek from New York to the sleepy college town of Kent, OH to record at the famous Waterloo Studios with Guided by Voices producer Todd Tobias. The result would be the band's 2008 debut, Cassette. Needing to assemble a band for live shows, Five recruited bassist Mark Shue and drummer Peter Sustarsic to help bring his sonic vision to life on-stage. After a prolific year of songwriting, the band returned to Waterloo to record their follow-up album, Magic Windows, Magic Nights, which was released in 2010 on (Fill in the Blank) Records. ~ Gregory Heaney
